Being known

"But now that you know God—or rather are known by God—"
Galatians 4:9a

Tonight as Marie and I prayed I just felt the reality of being known by God in a profound way. Nothing big, just a quiet knowing that he sees right through me. I saw it as a picture - like my skin was transparent and my skeleton was visible. But not in a yucky way. ;)

I just sat there for a while and soaked in the sense of being known by my Father. Because I'm realising that I know myself very little. I've had a sense of honesty as long as I've been self-aware, but when it comes to things of the heart, I realise I'm not too familiar with myself at all. It's not that I'm being dishonest, I just don't honestly know what's in my heart sometimes. Thank God that He does - and He still loves me.
